Orthodox Church growing in Pakistan very fast

For those who dont know about the growing Orthodox Church in Pakistan... Divine Liturgy was served in Sargodha City, Punjab, Pakistan. St. Michael the Archangel mission has been growing. They have land but no churches but have been meeting in tents made of bed sheets as they have no church building. They plan to open an orphanage but have very limited supplies. They are in need of Donations.
On the behalf of mission Fr. Cyril and Matuskha Imma visited Chak No.79 Sargodha and celebrated Divine Liturgy in village. Anglo Hina Samuel was reposed in Christ last week and in this service specially prayed for the departed soul, remember, O Lord, the souls of Thy departed servants Anglo Hina Samuel and of all my kins according to the flesh. Also remember all those of our fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters, who have fallen asleep in the hope of resurrection and of the life eternal, and render unto them eternal memory. In this service father Cyril through light on bible verse Revelation 21:4 and “He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away." Fr. Cyril performed Pannikhida service held in Bajwa colony Graveyard Sargodha
